10 Reasons For

Epson Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Epson has good average reviews for its projectors as well as across its entire multimedia projector range.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the PowerLite Pro G6550WU which do not support Full HD projection, the Epson PowerLite Pro G6550WU supports Full HD projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Benq W7000+, or the Optoma HD25 (£799.00) which has better reviews.

Supports 3D Image Projection
